Wow! Big Mesa Farmstead is absolutely amazing. You can not beat the proximity to SF, yet far away feel. From the city, Bolinas is just an hour north. Ashly is such a great host and has put an enormous amount of care and effort into maintaining the property. It is very well suited for guests you will for sure have everything you need. The bath house is so great and the outdoor showers are great as the morning sunlight shines through the boards making tiny rainbows. There is also a really, really amazing community kitchen where you will have the ability to cook whatever your heart desires.
The area is really great as well. Bolinas is a very popular surf location and the weather was great so there was fun crowd in town. If you are lucky, Ashley might have some fresh fruit or maybe even a little guac to share. Smileys, the local bar is also super fun. We ended up there for a great show and it was just the icing on the cake of a truly spectacular weekend. I could not speak more highly of Ashley and her property. You will love it! Go <3
Donner Lake camping at Amber's is great! The bell tent in the yard is really nicely done. There are a couple of small camping spots in the side yard between the house and road for additional friends. The location is central to Squaw Valley, Donner Lake and countless other North Lake activities. You are super close to the PCT and great backcountry skiing! Amber is a great host and very sweet. We really enjoyed our stay on Donner Lake! Highly recommended :)
Silver Fork Ranch is an amazing property! We camped and had a great weekend exploring the property and surrounding area. Rod and his animals are wonderful hosts. We had ample firewood, and any thing else we could have possibly needed. Zuke quickly made friends with us and was about the best host dog you could ask for. A quick hello and pat on the back then off he went to check on the other campers. The lake was just beautiful to sit around and so calming and peaceful. His ducks gathered outside of our tent eating grass and playing as the sun was setting across the wildflower filled fields. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay any more and highly recommend Silver Fork Ranch! It's definitely a must visit. Can't wait to return!
Sky Ranch is a great place to visit and only an hour from the park! We Stayed several nights in the cabin and had a great time! The cabin overlooks the park which makes for great views and killer sunsets! It's very hot in the summer but the property has an amazing crystal cave and pool both great for cooling off and escaping the heat. In the two yurts you will find a fully equipped kitchen and living area. Bronwyn is a great host and took care of all of our needs. We also purchased some fresh eggs, raw goats milk and fruit - all of which were just delicious! The stars from the back porch of the cabin are amazing - the milky way was shining bright overhead! This is a great place to escape reality and extremely convenient to Yosemite! Thanks Bronwyn for a wonderful weekend! Hope to visit again soon :)
